IMHO the Header has some design issues that could probably be easily addressed. Here's what I keep bumping into as I design SSP galleries, and it's been costing me a lot of time and design quality over the past few days. I hope these points can be considered and addressed.
(A) "Gallery Title" does two unrelated things simultaneously, and these need to be unlinked.
Setting the "Gallery Title" doesn't just determine the text which will appear at the top of the Header's text area, it also invisibly sets the HTML file's Title. As I choose to use the so-called Title (not as a title, which I choose to display in the Logo file), this means I have to go into the HTML file and edit the title over and over, with every update to the gallery.
HTML Title should be a separate entry/entity so that browsers don't show titles like "Click on the thumbnails to see larger images" or no title, if that field has been left blank.
(B) Header text should be optional. Every gallery I've designed is compromised in appearance because I HAVE TO accommodate the space Title and Description text occupy.
I'd like to be able to turn off the text altogether: make those fields invisible. Not the header, just the Title and Description text. That way I could design a graphic header which completely met my requirements, and not have two empty text-area's worth of dead space between the header graphic and the rest of the gallery.
Thanks for your attention. I'd love to know if these are doable, and if they could be considered.

Illustrations of these header problems as they have been worked-around can be seen at:
Not one of these galleries would have Header text if I could successfully integrate that content into my logo graphic and make the text fields invisible. And none of them have an HTML Title which matches the Header's "Gallery Title".
Thanks for your attention.
